Check hormone levels

I have been feeling really tired lately and gaining weight. Also, joints hurt. I have not had hormones checked since my TAH-BSO 5 yrs. ago. Am taking Estradiol 1 mg. daily. Have had thyroid checked and they say "normal" along with other blood tests.

Would it be wise to ask to have estrogen level checked? Help, tired of drs. telling me it's stress. Yeah, I'm stressed because I feel like crap and they won't listen to me.

Check hormone levels

Hi, this is my fourth week since my hysterectomy and I know what your going through. Tired, joints hurt, memory is terrible, I don't eat and i'm so cold all the time. I'm going to the doctor on Thurs. Hope I can get something figured out before I lose my mind. I feel like crap most of the time. Hang in there...this is not an easy thing in life. Thats what I have found out.

Check hormone levels

I don't think it would hurt to have a complete hormone panel done. All the hormones work in harmony. I would include estradiol, estriol, estrone, progesterone, testosterone and free testosterone. Also, when you had your thyroid checked to have a complete thyroid panel done? There is more than just TSH, there is also T-3, T-4 and thyroid antibodies to consider.
